Warner Bros. Pictures has released the full trailer for “Joker,” the upcoming original, standalone film exploring the origin of the famed DC Comics villain starring Joaquin Phoenix in the role.
Phoenix plays Arthur Fleck, a man facing the cruelty and outright scorn of society along with the indifference of a system that allows him to spiral from vulnerability into depravity. A clown-for-hire by day, he strives to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds that the joke always seems to be on him.
Caught in a cyclical existence teetering on the precipice of reality and madness, one bad decision brings about a chain reaction of escalating, ultimately deadly, events. “Joker” opens in cinemas everywhere on October 4th.
Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron and Shea Wingham co-star in the Todd Phillips-directed film which opens October 4th.
